    Shipyard Brewing Company to can Shipyard Export

    PORTLAND, ME – (July 12, 2012) – Due to the high demand for Shipyard Pumpkinhead, Shipyard Brewing Company has leased space to begin brewing in Memphis, Tennessee.  This will also allow Shipyard to offer its products in cans for the first time and expand its overall brewing capacity.

    “This is a very exciting time in our growth,” stated Shipyard’s president Fred Forsley.  “Our brewery in Portland is at full capacity and this allows us to meet consumer demand for our products.”    

    Master Brewer Alan Pugsley did the first brew in June and cans of Shipyard Export will be available in Maine starting next week with other select markets to follow this summer.   Shipyard Pumpkinhead will be available in cans this fall.
